Mayweather now wins 48 fights and 48 wins. He vows that he will be back in September. Asked for the reason why the American boxing champion is unbeatable, former world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson tells Sky Sports.
Manny Pacquiao tells fans at the MGM Grand he thinks he won the fight: “It’s a good fight, I thought I won. He didn’t do nothing, just moved outside.
“I got him many times. I think I won the fight. He is moving around and it’s not easy to throw a lot of punches if your opponent moves around. I can handle his power, it’s not strong like other opponents. It’s not about size. I’ve been fighting bigger than him and it’s not a problem.”
Floyd Mayweather speaks from inside the ring:
I want to thank God for this victory. I want to thank all the fans that came and those around the world. He’s a hell of a fighter. Now I see why he is one of the guys at the pinnacle of the sport of boxing.
“I knew he was going to push me. He had moments in the fight but I kept him on the outside, I was a smart fighter I out-boxed him. We did what we had to do tonight, I’m truly blessed.
“I calculate the fighter. He’s a tough competitor. My dad wanted me to do more but I had to take my time and watch Manny very close.
“When the history books are written, it was worth the wait. My last fight is in September and then it’s time for me to hang it up.”
